BEDFORD OR SMITH CEMETERY

6 miles north of the Corinth cemetery on the country road 154. The cemetery was very difficult to find as there is no sign and trees have grown up all around it. There is a mailbox that says S. A. Davis if you park your car and go east you will find the cemetery. Some of the graves are marked with old funeral home markers.
